A 12 year old African-American girl is set to be be expelled from her school for wearing her hair in its natural style.
Within the school's handbook, it states that students' hair cannot be cut in peculiar fashions or be a distraction to other students. Since the girl is relentlessly bullied for her totally natural hairstyle, the school board has ruled it violates this rule as a "distraction".
In a related story, notorious school bully Steven has managed to escape expulsion for the sixth time running. Sure, he may beat up teachers for their pensions, steal school bus carburetors to sell on Craigslist and smoke banana leaves on school grounds, but his hair is slick and unmemorable. A model pupil.
In a further related story, Emily's Chewbacca hair is also being reviewed by the school board to deem if it too is distracting. Her constant indecipherable howling and whining is also being discussed.
